After much trial and error, I am able to successfully boot VMware ESXi 5.5 U3b from an EMC CX4-120 iSCSI LUN.
Using 5 vNICs, 2 for Management / vMotion, 2 for VM traffic and 1 for iSCSI traffic - would like to use 2, but boot is only successful using a single iSCSI vNIC, adding a second causes boot issues.
Also, only the boot LUN is seen, no other LUNs are visible.
I am using an IQN Pool for Initiator Name Assignment and Initiator IP Address Policies for Initiator Address Assignment - one for Fabric A and another for Fabric B.
Any idea on what I am missing?
Below is a layout of the Service Profile configuration.
